Q&A

NZ House & Garden - - HOMES - Sue Sea­gar

BEST DEC­O­RAT­ING TIP:

Keep all the sur­round­ings neu­tral, then ac­ces­sorise. This way I can ro­tate looks con­stantly and it will al­ways look rein­vented.

BEST SEAT IN THE HOUSE:

The Aztec-style up­hol­stered set­tee in the liv­ing room, in front of a roar­ing fire. It is so com­fort­able, my sonin-law has asked me to leave it to him in my will.

THIS WEEK­END WE WILL BE:

Moun­tain bik­ing in the Red­woods in Ro­torua and jog­ging around the Blue Lake.

FAVOURITE OUT­DOOR SPOT:

At the ta­ble un­der the gazebo, with a glass of Hawke’s Bay syrah or, bet­ter still, cham­pagne, oblig­a­tory nib­bles and the pool and jacuzzi on hand.

BEST VIEW AND WALK IN THE NEIGH­BOUR­HOOD:

Head up Mauao [Mt Maunganui], es­pe­cially on a fine day, for fab­u­lous 360-de­gree views and a raised heart rate to boot.
